Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we gave them a B in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 84.05173 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we expected but still a decent percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. The nursing rating consists of several factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the fourth area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Of course, this category pulled down the facility's overall grade to some degree. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. It looks like this place was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we considered. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
